Head on over to 11/1/68 and you can see me and a bunch of others get called Hitler and a whole bunch of other stuff for suggesting people check out a different source for the show. It's pretty funny, if not sad.

I'm thinking that's not even trolling. That's vandalism.

Trolling is someone being a creep, but it passes. The reviews, though, aren't a discussion board. They're there as a permanent commentary on shows. If a lot of that happened, it would become hard to read through them. I'd say don't engage with the pathetic guy or he'll just keep "tagging" his verbal equivalent of Nazi signs all over the "review wall."

Yeah it sure is a fun one, ain't it? I would have provided a link but figured that might just bring more attention to it than I already have.

At first I found it kind of funny, then the more I read it I just felt really sad. I wasn't about to waste any time "defending" myself or anyone else. Show reviews, for me, are only there for a few reasons. To discuss/comment/critique the performance itself, the source/recording and it's quality, and for great tales from people who were there. Nothing else.

Guess it just goes to show that one mans meat is another mans poison. Quote is attributed to the Commander.
